I'm So Cute Lay-out

this baby is just the cutest ever! lol. i just had to scrapbook the pictures for posterity.

the main paper pattern is a beautiful embossed mother goose and humpty dumpty theme. i tore matching patterned papers for color blocking on top and at the bottom. after layering the pics with matching cardstock, i then positioned the big picture in the center upper half, then arranged the mini pictures at the bottom. i wanted the look of a baby's clothelines so i loosely positioned a string on top and attached the ends with snaps. the other embellishments i made, i hung them with a thin blue ribbon and secured them on the clothesline with mini clothespins. for the title, i used transparent gold alphas. a matching two toned colored ribbon on the side balances and completes the lay-out.

materials: k & co paper, the paper company vellum paper, ribbons, brads, inks, etc.

My Defining Moment Lay-out

am looking over my completed albums so i can archive some of my lay-outs for my blog. i promise to post more scrapbook lay-outs soon.

the picture was digitally enhanced using some special effects (page curl) then i printed it using a calendar lay-out. then i decorated the page with chipboards, flowers, brads ... then chalked and inked for a shabby chic vintage look. the right side has a journaling pocket with some special thoughts regarding this memory photo. i did the calligraphy by hand.

materials: imaginesce papaers and flowers, technique tuesday chipboards (painted, inked and stamped with images), queen & co brads.
